The availability of a complete and accurate phase diagram is an essential requirement if a full understanding of the properties, and hence the potential applications, of an alloy system is to be gained. Although the general nature of the tungsten-platinum constitutional diagram has been known for many years, it is now apparent that intermediate phases which are not incorporated in the published phase diagrams may exist, and evidence to support this is presented.
